Johnny Manziel struggles/recovers


Tuesday did not start swimmingly for Johnny Manziel.

Taking snaps with Cleveland’s first and second team during organized team activities, the rookie quarterback threw a trio of interceptions to Browns defenders.

After flinging the ball to undrafted safety Robert Nelson in positional drills, Manziel tossed a second pick during a full-squad heave that landed in the arms of veteran Donte Whitner, who took it to the house. Lightning struck again when Johnny Football misfired on a sideline route that cornerback Joe Haden pulled out of the sky for another pick six.

The rookie rebounded, though, to unload a 45-yard deep corner route to Anthony Armstrong, a pretty over-the-shoulder touchdown play that showed off Manziel’s arm strength. The rookie then looked sharp rolling to his right to peg tight end Jordan Cameron in stride on a 30-yard dart.
